Hey GOP, can I offer some advice to you? I know that you want to focus on policy this election, but there is something else you should focus your campaign strategy on as well. Currently, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) is going to trial for various corruption charges.
Now, I know what you are going to say (blame it on my inner psychic), “Hey CCC, why focus on Rangel?” Rangel is part of Congress’ wave of ethic and legislative corruption. Look at what has happened since Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership took over Congress. There have been several sexual harassment suits filed, rules violations, shady Senate appointments, the buying off of primary candidates, and my favorite (go grab a “Tickle Me Massa” doll), the so-called tickle incident.
Things are boding to well for Congress right now. Their approval rating sits at 38%, with votes of little to no competence. Is it any wonder why? While I agree that policy is the chief strategy, the GOP should focus on these ethics violations and continue tying Democrats to them.
